Dramatic early 20th c. French beaded sautoir. From the flapper era, or earlier, this wonderful long black faceted micro jet and gold steel bead necklace features Napoleonic era elements - insects and laurel leaves - which are beaded into the "chain" and on centerpiece. Everything is in perfect condition. A truly amazing piece in amazing condition. Never repaired, no damage. The long necklace is 29" (14.5 each side), and centerpiece with twist fringes is 3" long. Photos do not do this justice.
